gCaptain brought my attention to cruise ship rather unfortunate encounter with the Drake Passage. For those who don’t know, the Drake Passage is the hell hole between the tip of South America and the Antarctica Peninsula infamous for the roughest seas in the world. Go ahead type “roughest seas in the world” into Google, 9 out of 10 will refer to the Drake Passage.
Obviously, the Drake Passage is not something to take lightly. It requires an experienced captain, crew, and a hardy (and preferably large…that’s what she said) ship. Tackling the Drake Passage for tourism…well… add this to a growing list why tourism to the Southern Continent is a bad idea.
